well ware to start ive been suffering with depression all my life never fully clear of it but like us all have my ups and downs. this may sound daft but for years I have been a peer support worker with a self help group for fellow sufferers. yet I still find it hard to open up when im feeling down feel so ashamed of my own issues. my perceived inability to make friends or find relationships which have been with me since a young kid. just wondered if that sounds daft why do I still feel ashamed of that.
